Goal For Tomorrow: A New Computer

Yee-Haw, it's the weekend!  I decided to visit my parents on Saturday instead of working on the yard or going out to my property.  My mom needs a new computer since her old Mac is just about dead.  Even the Mac help-line couldn't help her because the thing is so old.  I'll be picking up a Dell desktop, most likely, from Best Buy tomorrow.  I hate Windows 8 but if I get it set up with the things that she uses most often, email, news, weather, I think she should be able to figure it out.  My price range is $500 and I found one on the website.  I'm hoping that I can find the same thing in the store or something close to it.

Also on the to-do list, help mom tidy up her yard and cook the large chunk of meat that I bought last week.  I need to remember to throw it in the crock pot in the morning.  I read that the price of chicken is going up and beef is going down.  I guess I'll have to learn how to cook beef.

I have continued to clear the weeds from my yard after work until dark.  I usually only have 15 or 20 minutes but every little bit helps.  The dog's side of the yard is almost done.  I just need to rearrange the rocks and railroad ties to define the edges of the flower beds.  Then I can buy more gravel and fill in all the open spaces.  I'm going to try to grow a small patch of grass for the dogs.  It will be only 3'x4' near my sliding door.  If seed doesn't work, I might try sod.  But that's for another weekend.  This weekend is all about computers.
